Fall’s always been a favorite season of mine because a lot of my favorite TV shows air during the season, including Bones, NCIS, House, Supernatural, Fringe, etc. Similarly, a lot of new TV shows debut during the fall. For fall 2011, broadcast networks are piloting more than 30 new US TV shows. Here’s the top 10 Fall 2011 TV shows I’m excited to see:
- Terra Nova – A family travels back in time to save the future. With Steven Spielberg as one of the producers, expect dinosaurs to come alive on your TV screens. The show stars Jason O’Mara (Life On Mars), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Mido Hamada (24) and Christine Adams (The Whole Truth).
- Work It – Fans of Mrs. Doubtfire should look out for this one. Hunks Amaury Nolasco of Prison Break and Ben Koldyke of How I Met Your Mother plays dress up as female pharmaceutical reps. The pilot’s a must-see if only to see how the yummy Amaury looks in a dress.
- The X Factor — From American Idol to this new talent reality tv show, Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul once again sit on the judges’ table, looking for undiscovered talent. Joining them on the judges’ table is Cheryl Cole and LA Reid. A $5 million recording contract is at stake so expect lots of drama.
- Alacatraz — Another sci-fi to watch out for, Alcatraz is about a group of prisoners and guards who mysteriously disappeared from The Rock some 30 years prior. Can you guess who the executive producer is? J.J. Abrams of Lost and Fringe. Definitely a must-watch.
- Charlie’s Angels – Fun, fearless females are on the loose this fall with the revival of this 70’s TV classic. Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Rachael Taylor (Grey’s Anatomy), and Annie Ilonzeh (General Hospital) will be kicking ass on the telly and, hopefully, on the ratings game.
- The Finder — Fox introduced this Bone’s spinoff in Season 6 of Bones. Geoff Stults stars as a military-trained officer who specializes in locating anything and anyone. Michael Duncan of the Green Mile fame plays sidekick/legal adviser. Stults’ character promises to be an obnoxious but lovable character just like Patrick Jane of the Mentalist.
- Grimm — Literature lovers may find a gold mine in this fantastical dark drama. The show will bring to life the characters in Grimm’s Fairy Tales. I smell a wolf somewhere.
- New Girl – The cute Zooey Deschanel leads this series about an elementary school teacher who moves in with three rowdy men, one of which is her cousin. They help her get over her ex boyfriend and find a new man. The question is who among her two house mates will fall in love with her first?
- Once Upon a Time — Snow White and her evil stepmother comes to life in this fantastical drama. The cast includes Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Lana Parrilla.
- The Secret Circle – A young woman played by Brittany Robertson that she is a witch from a secret coven.I sense a “Supernatural”-like mood.
Add these new fall 2011 tv shows to the returning shows that I watch, I expect my electric bill to soar this fall season. This would certainly cut the time I spend on writing SEO articles for engagement ring insurance and web marketing companies.
